When I was a kid, I loved to climb trees with my friends. Fearlessly, we would leap to the first branch then make our way to the top. We climbed all kinds of trees from maple, oak, sycamore even pine, but not all of them were strong enough for us. A weak tree didn’t hold the likes of several girls and boys climbing it at the same time. But the Environmentally Farmed Timber (EFT) that University Loft Company uses for solid wood college furniture and off-campus housing certainly would hold that many kids and then some. EFT is also known as Hevea Brasiliensis. Independent laboratory testing has proven that the eco-friendly Hevea Brasiliensis trees are stronger than the Northern Red Oak. They measured the results in newtons as force in which the meter showed pound/feet to demonstrate the force needed to pull a screw from the wood. Guess what, the Red Oak snapped at under 140 pounds of pressure whereas EFT broke at 160 pounds of pressure. University Loft uses superior wood for our student housing furniture.
But that’s not all.
It also grows five times faster than the Northern Red Oak. At University Loft Company, we understand the importance of safeguarding the ecosystem. We are committed to doing our part to help protect our environment. Using EFT is a great way to sustain wood supply for continued college furniture manufacturing. We offer our customers the best by choosing superior wood for our student housing furniture.
Looking out of the window at the large mulberry tree, I considered climbing it but decided to leave that to the squirrels. Or maybe I’ll try it when no one is looking…
